Wingspan 38-44 mm. Three of the members of the genus Epirrita, (November Moth, E. dilutata, Autumnal Moth, E. Autumnata, and Pale November Moth, E. chrystyi), can be very difficult to separate on markings alone, especially as some show marked melanism. This species appears to be the most widespread and common, however.
Wide range of habitats.
The adults fly from late September to November.
The larvae feed in late spring on a variety of trees and shrubs.
Occurring commonly over most of Britain. In a recent survey to determine the status of all macro moths in Britain this species was classified as common.
